Note:

Due to global warming, the weather in the mountain and hilly region has changed unusually. Because of this, we are facing some problems with bad weather, heavy rainfall, landside, highway blocked, flight delayed, or even canceled for a day. Sometimes because of the road traffic, we couldn't arrive on time. It may happen at any time of the year because we can't predict the weather condition and other situations. Therefore, if possible, we would like to suggest adding an extra supplement day before your international flight. If everything is going well, you have a beautiful day to visit any interesting place in the historical city.
